A Novel use of O’Reilly books (video)

This definitely falls into the category of someone having too much time on his hands.

The neat part about this is the amount of work that went into it. The hacker who made the xylophone had trouble finding books at first. Most didn't have a good sound, so he soaked the books in a glue solution and then a sugar water solution. I t didn't help any. Then he noticed that O'Reilly printed books on a different quality of paper, and he was able to use them as-is.

There's a fair amount of detail on his website (in Japanese), but what made it through Google Translate was mostly gibberish.

About Nate Hoffelder (11585 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
